CD Projekt RED is hard at work on their next-gen RPG with Cyberpunk 2077, with the developer talking with PC Gamer recently where they said Cyberpunk 2077 is becoming more ambitious than The Witcher 3.
Adam Kicinski, CEO of CDPR, said: "Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious. Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it's very appealing to players, not only RPG players - but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It's handcrafted, detailed, of course open-world, with open-ended gameplay".
Kicinski continued: "Great game, more ambitious than Witcher 3, and we believe that we can aim [at] more ambitious business goals as well - of course, still having gamer-centric focus and quality focus as a main priority".
We've reported before that The Witcher 4 could happen, but the developer has said: "We can't create Witcher 4, because that was a trilogy from the beginning. No one said that one day we won't decide to develop something in the Witcher universe. But now we're focusing on Cyberpunk and Gwent".
